These 20 Churches in Delaware Will Leave You Absolutely Speechless

A report authored in 1947 took note of nearly 900 churches on record in the state of Delaware. From the 1600s, when early settlers came to the area for its fertile soils, there was no major religion, like in the northern colonies, and therefore the religious freedom was even more so in Delaware, drawing Quakers, Catholics, Jews, and Protestants. In the 1700 and 1800s, after years of mainly worshiping in small, rustic churches, beautiful works of stone and brick architecture sprung up. Many of them still stand as active churches today, still in their historic beauty. Here are a mere 20 that we think are real stunners, in no particular order.

We know that the insides of these churches must be as stunning as the outsides.
